Fixed Frame

DESIGN

Slant Design

CSI is designed by weaving together a distinctive thin large diameter aluminium frame and beautiful carbon rear triangle.

A utility bike endorsed by riders due to its performance and sharpness because of its super lightweight body and specifications. The frame design has a common design code which is the “slant design” adopting the two narrow inclined pipes sandwiching the top tube. The silhouette of the impressive frame design not only lies in the design, but also on the unique minivelo framework that will contribute to increase the strength of the entire frame as well as the rigidity around the long head tube. High torsional rigidity due to this slant effect and low center of gravity because of the geometry plus using the strongest yet lightweight #7005 aluminium alloy series and pair it with a rear carbon triangle will create an explosive acceleration feeling and sharp handling which road bike’s cannot give. The CSI is compatible to install the Shimano Di2 electronic drive train. It’s smooth, beautiful welding and attention to detail is the perfect one for those who pursues real fun.

Attractive Frame Design

“Slant Tube” is when two tubes extending from the head tube to the top tube creates an exceptional beauty when viewed from the back. Furthermore, the unique shape down tube enhances the rigidity which is the uniqueness of the CSI.

Craftsmanship Detailing

The smooth welding on the aluminium 7005 frame for light weight and high rigidness requires the welding beads to be carefully polished. This attention to the smallest details is to ensure the CSI is beautifully and skilfully done.

The New Carbon Rear Triangle

Using carbon material for high vibration absorbing purposes on the chain and seat stay, also adds to the beauty of the CSI.

 

Around the BB Design

Three places around the bottom bracket are welded to increase the frame strength. The Chainstay which is fixed by a special adhesive, brings out a tremendous rigid feeling beyond imagination.

How a bike helmet should fit?

Choosing the correct cycle helmet – this is how you find the right size

In order to find the right cycle helmet, you must first find the right size. First you need to measure the circumference of your head, preferably using a tape measure. Alternatively you could use a piece of string. Measure the circumference at the level of your forehead, approximately 1 cm above your eyebrows.

With our cycle helmets, you can always find the helmet size and corresponding head circumference listed under technical data. ABUS cycle helmets come in different sizes.

TECHNOLOGY

N-Fold™ Technology – THE FASTER FOLD

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

OCL™ Frame Joint – ADVANCED FOLDING TECHNOLOGY

The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.

DoubleTruss™ Technology – STIFFER BY DESIGN

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

T-Tuned™ Geometry – FULL-SIZED RIDE, COMPACT FOLD

At Tern, we endeavor to build fast-folding bikes that ride like full-sized bikes. Our T-Tuned geometry is the culmination of our commitment. We’ve tweaked the wheelbase, rake, and seat-tube angle of our design to deliver the most confident and stable ride of any bike in our lineup. Ride one and try it. Take your hands off the handlebars if you’re feeling bold.

Quadric™ Dropouts – THE USER-CENTERED DROPOUT

Dropouts are often overlooked, but a good dropout goes a long way. Our Quadric dropout is built taller, so your disc brakes are protected inside the frame. The design makes the eyelets for mudguards, racks, and our clip system more user-friendly and accessible than ever before. We even included a mount for a sturdy rear kickstand.

Tarsus™ Fork – HYDROFORM MEETS FUNCTION

Utilizing a single hydroformed tube mated to a precision-machined steerer, the Tarsus delivers superior strength in a shape that matches the sophisticated lines of the Verge and Eclipse frames.

Hydroformed Tubing: The process of hydroforming aligns the grain structure and strengthens the aluminum material. It also minimizes welding in the most highly stressed area of the fork.

Internal Wire Routing: If you decide to equip your Tarsus with a dynamo hub, it’s ready for internal cable routing, keeping the profile of your bike clean.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost – THE NEW BENCHMARK

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.

Syntace VRO Stem – FIND YOUR FIT

Your bike should adapt to fit you―not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.

Porter+™ Saddle – CARRY YOUR BIKE COMFORTABLY

We reengineered the underside of the age-old bike saddle into a comfortable grip and shoulder pad. Up top, the dual-density construction and gel cushioning will keep you comfortable on the road, and the impeccably finished vacuum construction makes the saddle waterproof and easy-to-clean. Down below, the GripPad™ on the underside of the saddle lets you grip the saddle nose with comfortable confidence when your rolling your folded bike.

Pedal Holder – QUICK-RELEASE PEDAL STORAGE

Our bikes come loaded with lots of wow features, but one of our enduring favorites is the quick-release pedal. Once removed, it gives you a smaller and more maneuverable folded package. This under-saddle pedal holder lets you keep your free-floating pedal conveniently at hand.

Strut™ Seatpost – SETBACK AND SLIM

Made from special 2104 aluminum, the Strut is our lightest seatpost ever. It’s designed with an 8 mm offset to deliver a spacious cockpit and an aerodynamic riding position. It’s capped with a dual-bolt rail clamp for precise saddle adjustment.

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes – ALL-WEATHER STOPPING POWER

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.

Kinetix Pro Disc Wheels – SPEED ALERT

Paired-spoke design allows us to build a strong wheel with fewer spokes—resulting in a lightweight, aerodynamic wheel for fast riding.

Schwalbe Durano Tires – FOR MILE EATERS

We love these sporty tires for their impressive high mileage. They’ll let you log mile, after mile, after mile. A double layer of nylon fabric protects you against flats, and the dual-compound rubber gives you excellent grip—even on wet winter roads—while keeping rolling resistance in check.

Shimano Shadow Derailleur – STREAMLINED SHIFTING

Originally developed for mountain bikes—for extra durability and to avoid catching on trail debris—the Shadow derailleur is streamlined and incredibly resilient, which comes in handy when you need to transport your folded bike. Whether your bike is bagged on the subway or riding in the trunk of your car, everything is neatly tucked away.

1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain – SIMPLIFIED VERSATILITY

There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.

Cargo Kickstand – READY TO HAUL

The Cargo Kickstand is built strong and will keep your fully loaded Tern bike upright. It uses Pletscher’s rear chainstay mount design.

Magnetix™ 2.0 – KEEP IT TOGETHER

The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.

Luggage Socket™ – CARRY MORE STUFF

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.

Tyrell FX

Fast, Light and Compact

Tyrell FX – Lightweight & high performance folding bike.

Slant Design

A long-awaited folding bike · The FX was born from Tyrell’s DNA, which pioneered new development for mini-velos.

The frame design has a common Tyrell trademark which is the SLANT Design where two narrow inclined pipes are sandwiched to the top tube. At the first glance, it does not look like a folding bike and yet it folds like an origami transforming itself into a compact elegant folding bike. We at Tyrell are not only working towards creating an impressive and attractive silhouette based on the design, but a unique framework for minivelos as we research ways to increase the strength and rigidness of the entire frame, the improvement of the frame geometry by lowering the center of gravity of the top tube and optimizing the dimensions of the wheel base. No doubt this elements can be solved by adopting the Slant Design, we still need to strive to better the folding mechanism and keep on delivering to you new innovation that can shape the future of folding bikes and minivelos. But for now the FX is the fusion between a great foldable bike with performance and lightness.

Detailed Welding Finishing

Main frame is lightweight #7005 Aluminium double butted tubing. Need a truly committed craftsman to ensure smooth welding and detailing.

Frame Unlike Any Other Folding Bike

The key point in the development was to make a strong and beautiful folding bike without having moving parts in the main frame. We would like to create a design that from a glance is known to be a Tyrell by incorporating the Slant Design to the FX.

Innovative Folding Fork

The folding fork adopts a backward folding method. This smart design integrates the foldable function of the fork but at the same time securing the strength of it as well. Distinctive use of aluminium and carbon materials on the fork create a light weight foldable fork that is only 900 g.

Unique Original Parts

We at Tyrell express our commitment to every small detail in the design of our bike such as the Aluminium end cap of the grip which is printed with our original logo.

Powder Coating Paint

Powder coating by Kadowaki Coating (Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture) creates a beautiful and durable paint finish.

BB Pivot・Crankset

To ensure the rigidity around the BB, we designed a pivot with built-in bearing under the BB for the rear wheel to turn 180 ° around this axis when folded. And in ensuring the chain does not detach during folding, we attached a 56T CNC chain guard.”

Speed, Performance and Stability

Due to the low center of gravity and long wheel base, the FX thoroughly eliminates that wobbly ride feeling that is common among small wheel bicycles. On the FX it is possible to have speed, performance and stability in one bike that no other lightweight 20 inch folding bike can offer.

SADDLE MAINTENANCE & CARE

1) How do I break in my saddle? 

The best way to break in your new saddle is to ride it frequently. Like a new pair of quality leather boots, a leather saddle may be uncomfortable for some at the outset; but like a good pair of boots, once broken in, they will, with proper care, provide the owner with decades of use.

2) Why have the Rails/ Tension Pin/ Backplate on my brooks saddle broken?

By far the most common cause of breakages of the Rail, Backplate and Tension Pin is insufficient leather tension. Brooks recommend a routine six-monthly check of the tension, and adjustment where required.

3) I bought a new Tension Pin for my Brooks, but I am not able to fit it? 

It can be quite tricky to re-fit a Tension Pin at home, especially on a saddle that is still relatively new. In the Brooks factory, we have a specially designed powered apparatus which performs this task with ease.
You should make a note of a position of the existing Tension Pin Nut and aim to eventually set the new nut to the same position. For ease of fitting, you can then move the nut all the way to the head of the pin. Try to hold the Leather Top still (you can use a bench vice for this, but be sure to protect the leather surface with soft padding). Having positioned the new Pin within the Shackle and Bracket Assembly, you now need to pull the Frame backwards in order to be able to push the head of the Pin into its correct location in the front hole of the metal Nose piece; Small final adjustments can be carried out with the careful use of a cross-peen hammer. Once the Tension Pin is located well, return the nut to the setting noted earlier.

4) I cannot find Brooks proofide on sale near my home. Can I use another treatment (Eg Neat’s-Foot Oil)?

Proofide is a tried and trusted product, the ingredients of which are known to Brooks. This is the only dressing, therefore, that we can endorse for use on a Brooks leather product. The use of any other product is frowned upon and will jeopardize your warranty rights.
Neat’s-foot oil, in particular, is known to have serious harmful effects on a Brooks saddle, weakening the inner fibres of the leather to the point where the leather is no longer strong enough to support the weight of a rider; it will also destroy the sheen finish of the leather.

5) How do I determine whether I have the correct level of Tension in my Brooks saddle?

Your saddle tension should have been correctly set by Brooks during manufacture. This tension should be good for the first six months that you own the saddle.
Brooks recommend that you inspect your saddle after every six months; there are two guidelines to help you decide whether, or not, to add more tension: –
The aim is to maintain a fairly flat profile on the leather, when viewed from the side, just like when it was new.
To increase the tension, you should turn the Tension Pin nut so that it moves towards the rear of the saddle (when viewed from the front of the saddle, this will be a clockwise turn on the spanner). This will retighten the leather and ‘’pull up’’ any sagging.
Normally just between ¼ and one complete spanner rotation should be sufficient to correct the tension issue. You need also to wary of over-tensioning*; Imagine that the leather is like the hamstring of a professional athlete; adding too much tension in any one adjustment period will pull, and may even tear, the inner fibres of the leather.
(*This is especially prevalent on saddles that use the Allen Key adjuster.)
Never adjust a wet saddle.

6) How often should I apply Proofide to my Brooks saddle? 

The primary function of Brooks Proofide is to nourish the leather to keep it supple and to prevent it from drying out with age. With this in mind, it is generally not necessary to apply Proofide to a new saddle. Instead, it is recommended to apply it after every 6 months.
Proofide should be applied sparingly to the upper surface of the leather using just enough to cover the entire upper surface area. This should then be left on the leather for several hours (perhaps overnight) in order to allow penetration through into the inner fibres, before buffing off thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Some Brooks saddle owners use Proofide for two further purposes:
a/ If the saddle is giving excessive discomfort after some time of use, then Proofide will soften the leather and hence encourage it to break-in more readily
b/ If riding regularly over wet surfaces (especially if you bicycle does not have mudguards), then a coating of Proofide applied and left onto the underside of the leather will offer some moisture shielding to the leather
HOWEVER, in both of these two cases, it is very important to be mindful of the irreversible damage that can result from excessive application of Proofide. There is a risk that the leather will over soften and then no longer be able to support the rider’s weight.
Proofide is a tried and trusted product, the ingredients of which are all know to Brooks. This is the only dressing, therefore, that we can endorse for use on a Brooks leather product. The use of any other product is frowned upon and will also jeopardize your warranty rights.
